Well, you are at a low risk of syphilis. Some people may not experience symptoms. So i suggest, go get tested at the appropriate period and not be overly fixated on symptoms.

Can you enlighten me why oak sex is low risk on syphilis. He *** on my mouth.
Oral
Ejaculation has nothing to do with syphilis. Syphilis is transmitted by your skin coming into contact with skin of someone else, usually when they have symptoms present.

You're at low risk because syphilis isn't that common, and if he had no sores on his penis, which I'm sure he didn't or you'd have stopped giving him oral sex, changes of you getting syphilis from him are very slim.

Canker sores are not syphilis sores. Syphilis sores are called chancre sores.

Chancre sores are painless. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/syphilis/symptoms-causes/syc-20351756

Hello auntiejessie. It’s been 80 days now and didn’t have any chancre sore or rashes . I am clear of syphilis?
The only way to know if you are clear of syphilis is to test. It's most likely that you are clear since you haven't had any symptoms, but if you want to know for sure, you should test.
